Hello 2017!

I am excited to welcome 2017!

We are off to a good start.

Keira and Sadie have been working on snuggling in every tiny space in the house. 


We updated our living room furniture and B was exhausted afterwards. 


I tried to get some end of 2016 selfies with the family which is nearly impossible with a 3 and 9 year old. 


I did manage to get Keira to pose for a few quick shots though. 




B even humored me for a minute. 



We celebrated with the family..nothing like donuts and games to ring in a new year. 



Happy new year!!!  Bring on 2017!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!!!  This year we had a great holiday!  We spent time with family and did a bunch of fun activities. 

Here are some photos from the past few days...

Sadie loves her Keira girl.  She is so patient with Keira. 



We went to zoo lights with the whole family and then went back to our house for cheese and snacks. 

Layla and Keira were such goofballs that this was the best picture my aunt got of them "sitting on the stairs" together. 


Keira rocked some crazy outfits at all of the events.


On Christmas Eve we hit the Starwars Costume exhibit.  Chase is getting so big!  I couldn't believe how old he looks. 


B captured this picture of Keira posing like Yoda.  It's perfect!


Christmas morning was a blast - the kids were very excited. 


Don't you wish you were this excited about life??


Keira went with another fun outfit for Christmas day brunch. 



Some afternoon snuggles...


Lastly we finished the evening by trying out every single gift including the ballet outfit.  She is an adorable ballerina...


Merry Christmas!  I hope everyone else enjoyed time with family too!

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas...

It has been crazy busy lately. Boris took a new job, it is the holiday season, the kids have a lot of activities...phew!

Here is a blog catch up.

Random cute photo of Keira...


The dogs have been super snuggly lately. 


Keira had her nails painted for the first time and now she is obsessed. I see many manicures in my future. 


Sadie is adjusting still...she is in her puppy fear stage. She is afraid of just about everything...except Keira for some reason. Having a 3 year old crawl on you and scream in your face is apparently ok lol.




Chase went to a birthday party recently and had a great time. I can't believe how big he is getting. 


We decorated a gingerbread train...


Chase took it very seriously. 


I went to my annual sewing group breakfast at Cracker barrel.  Everyone had a great time!


I won the Employee of the Year award at work (ignore the ugly Christmas sweater...the award ceremony happened to be on the same day as our team holiday party and there was an ugly Christmas sweater competition).


Our team had a blast celebrating the end of the year...


We finished the night with Keira's holiday performance. She makes such a cute little reindeer!



Looking forward to Christmas fun this year!  Tomorrow - Rogue One!!!

Winter is Finally Here

It finally snowed here!!!  I feel like we leapt from summer directly into winter this year.

Here are some fall updates...

Halloween was fun!  My work team dressed up for Halloween and then decided that everyone needed mustaches to top things off!  


Keira was really into Halloween this year.




She thought trick or treating was great but tired quickly.  Afterwards we sat on the porch and handed out candy.



We saw the Trolls movie, Keira loved it and now all we do is listen to the soundtrack on repeat...



We celebrated Uncle's birthday.


The kids have been fighting like cats and dogs lately but I did manage to catch this sweet picture.



Sadie and Stark are the cutest right?!



Lastly, Keira's school picture, she is so big!
